Govt should ensure that Rajapaksa resolves Tamil question: CPI

As Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa arrives here tomorrow, the CPI today demanded that the Government should compel him to work towards a political solution.



New Delhi: As Sri Lankan President Mahinda
Rajapaksa arrives here tomorrow, the CPI today demanded that
the Government should compel him to work towards a political
solution to quickly resolve the Tamil question and not
"dilly-dally" on the issue.

Party National Secretary D Raja said the Indian
Government should ensure that the President does not "get
away" with words like relief and rehabilitation.

"The Government should pin him down on how he plans to
resolve the ethnic crisis in the island country. It should ask
him what the Sri Lankan Government has done in the past one
year for the Tamil community," he said.

Rajapaksa will arrive here tomorrow on a three-day visit
during which he will hold talks with Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and others.

Raja said Rajapaksa had stated in some interviews that
India helped Sri Lanka militarily and that it goes against the
Government`s public stand that it had nothing to do with the
civil war.

He alleged that the Indian Government`s "attitude" may
also result in Sri Lanka escaping the scrutiny of the "war
crimes" allegedly perpetrated on Tamils during the last phase
of the war against LTTE.
